Fugitive by Shirlee McCoy



Fugitive starts off with a bang and never lets up. Laney has a terrible past full of heartache and evil. Logan was her rescuer. Thirteen years later, it's her turn to do the rescuing. In a manner of speaking. That's the surface, the tense plot that catches your attention and sucks you in. What really held me there was the intense connection between Logan and Laney. That and the fact that Shirlee McCoy has a real talent for sharing a back story without killing the suspense or the intrigue. That's definitely the sign of a great read.

And whether Laney saved Logan this time around... well I'll let you decide that. In the end justice is served, love is found and hope and faith is renewed. Just don't forget that the nice little ending took a whole lot of suspense to get there and it's the journey that matters. I definitely recommend this one.



When she opens her door to a wounded, handcuffed stranger, Laney Jefferson is terrified…until she recognizes her unexpected visitor. Thirteen years ago, Logan Randal was there for her when she desperately needed a friend. Now the wrongfully convicted lawman needs the widow’s help. On the run from the law and guided only by Laney’s unswerving faith in Logan’s innocence, their mutual attraction begins to break down the barriers around Laney’s heart. But the real culprit is much closer than they imagine…a cunning enemy determined to keep the past—and the truth—buried forever.

Heroes for Hire: Seeking the truth—at any cost


"The second of five children, I spent my childhood making up stories and acting them out with my sisters. Together with our menagerie of stuffed animals, we overpowered bad guys, righted wrongs, and made the world a better place. When I wasn’t engaged in imaginative play, I lost myself in the lives and adventures of Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, and Trixie Belden. It wasn’t long before I discovered my mother’s gothic romances and became an ardent fan of romantic suspense.
Today I’m a busy mom of five. When I’m not homeschooling my children or trying to keep up with endless piles of laundry, I still enjoy losing myself in a good book. And I still love making up stories. Armed with a laptop, ten fingers, and my God-given imagination, I overpower bad guys, right wrongs, and make the world a better place for my characters." - Shirlee McCoy
